Artemide IN-EI-Mendori

I love it how the lighted IN-EI sculpures by Issey Miyake enhance the windows of our showroom.
Yesterday I enjoyed a beautiful sunset on the mountains across the street while the IN-EI sculptures were glowing in the fadng light.
They are all so stunning!
This is my favorite: the Mendori. It looks different from every angle.

A SCULPTURE OF SHADOW AND LIGHT: IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE

“Beauty lies not in objects, but in the interaction between the shadow and light created by objects.”
Junichiro Tanizaki, ‘In Praise of Shadows’

The IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE lighting collection was co-developed and manufactured by Artemide.
It is a collection of free-standing, table and hanging lights.
Each lampshade is created using 2 or 3D mathematic principals, where light and shade harmoniously alternate.
Miyake’s unique folding technology creates both statuesque forms as well as sufficient solidity.
The structure of the recycled material, together with an additional surface treatment allows these shades to perfectly keep their shape without the need for internal frame, and to be re-shaped when needed. They can be easily stored flat when not in use.

IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE was born from a collaboration with Artemide marrying their lighting expertise with the Lab’s innovative approach to the material and design.

“I am extremely proud of this collaboration. Issey Miyake devotes his extraordinary artistic commitment to a quest dedicated to men’s needs and existence. The same commitment you can see in The Human Light, Artemide’s mission and philosophy. We share Miyake’s values and visions.”
Ernesto Gismondi, Artemide

Such similarities of vision come from shared core values behind both Artemide’s and Reality Lab’s research.
The project revolves around a fabric derived from entirely recycled materials, diffusing light in extremely interesting ways.
It is a re-treated fibre made using PET bottles. The bottles are processed using an innovative technology that reduces both energy consumption and CO2 emissions up to 40% when compared to the production of new materials.
Issey Miyake’s artistic vision, applied to the new 3D mathematical process, combines the Japanese tradition of light with Miyake’s unique ability to translate tradition into modernity.
Artemide animates these sustainable and striking shapes using LED lighting, today’s most relevant sustainable technology.

A sculpture of shadow and light

“When you see them, you can’t help feeling moved; when you understand them, you are full of wonder seeing a future we thought unreachable and couldn’t imagine this beautiful”.
Ernesto Gismondi introduces IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE’,  conceived by Issey Miyake and his Reality Lab, and brought to life by Artemide.

“IN-EI” – Japanese for ” shadow, shadiness, nuance” .
The art of lighting has a conceptual and technological heritage at the Miyake Design Studio, dating back to 2010, when Issey Miyake and his research and development team called Reality Lab., presented “132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE”, an extremely ingenious process that provides a novel direction for innovative textiles technologies.

This new process was developed using amathematical program with 3-D geometric principals by Jun Mitani.

The project comes from the intersection of creativity and mathematics, resulting in clothing that can be folded flat and become 3D shapes, starting from a single piece of cloth. As the Reality Lab. explored “132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE”‘s potential in areas beyond clothing, a natural extension of the process was lighting products.
IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE was born from a collaboration with Artemide marrying their lighting expertise with the Lab.’s innovative approach to the material and design.

A SCULPTURE OF SHADOW AND LIGHT: IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE

“Beauty lies not in objects, but in the interaction between the shadow and light created by objects.”
Junichiro Tanizaki, ‘In Praise of Shadows’

The Mogura table lamp is available in two sizes. It is a beautiful accent light for almost any space.
I can picture it in a tranquil Zen inspired bedroom,  in an entryway creating a warm welcome, or lending a dark corner in a living space some added visual interest.

The IN-EI ISSEY MIYAKE lighting collection was co-developed and manufactured by Artemide.
It is a collection of free-standing, table and hanging lights.
Each lampshade is created using 2 or 3D mathematic principals, where light and shade harmoniously alternate.

Fashion world icon Issey Miyake has now expanded the idea behind his signature origami inspired clothing design 132 5. to lighting.

Yesss!!

OK,  For a while I have been drooling over the incredible origami inspired garments by Issey Miyake. The entire design concept, the looks, the creativity, the idea behind them are all just so intriguing.
Then he translates the exact same concept to lighting, introduces the IN-EI collection – and I am on cloud nine.
What can be better than this intricate play of light and shadows, the unique shapes of these light creations, the sustainability of the materials, the LED light source, the functionality of the fixtures and a price that is still well within reach?
